Top 10 Nicest People of All Time

The Top Ten

1 Jesus Christ Jesus Christ Jesus Christ was born in Bethlehem, Palestine. He was born to Mary, as the bible says "she was found with child of the Holy Ghost" (Matthew 1:18). He was both man and God (John 20:28). According to the bible He is God alone (Deuteronomy 6:4). more.

Jesus is kind he is helpful we should be sorry for our sins he is the best we should be nicer not ruder

Literally the best person ever to have lived. Nobody else can come close, it is impossible.

Whoever thinks he is not real should bury themselves underground and snort dirt

I don't believe that only 13% of people Voted Christ as the kindest person.

2 Mahatma Gandhi Mahatma Gandhi Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was the preeminent leader of the Indian independence movement in British-ruled India.

He was so peacefull

One of the most legendary hypocrites in history and a friend of Hitler. I guess that puts him in the top 3 nicest people somehow? - SloppyFirsts

Gandhi refused to give allow her wife to recieve modern medical treatment she was ill (opting only for spiritual healing instead). She died. Then when he got sick, he let doctors use the full extent of modern medicine on him. - marmalade_skies

But he didn't do anything about his dying father just so he could have sex. Is that nice? - 445956

3 Martin Luther King Jr. Martin Luther King Jr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was an American Baptist minister, activist, humanitarian, and leader in the African-American Civil Rights Movement.

I have a dream that some day Martin Luther King can watch us from heaven where he belongs

Should be number 2, Gandhi was a sex addict, a racist (During South Africa) and a hypocrite! MLK Jr. Gave African Americans rights and had powerful speeches that touched our hearts.

I would be treated differently than people with light skin. - Luckys

He's a good person!

4 Abraham Lincoln Abraham Lincoln Abraham Lincoln was the 16th President of the United States, serving from March 1861 until his assassination in April 1865. Lincoln led the United States its bloodiest war and its greatest moral, constitutional, and political crisis.

Lincoln is given a much glossier image. Not the tyrant some revisionists want to name him, but he was practical in war time and brutal toward his enemies. - marmalade_skies

He led the country through the Civil War, and got rid of Slavery. No wander people think he's the greatest president of the United States.

You know nothing about the reasons and purposes behind the Civil War, and you certainly know nothing about Lincoln.Yours is the revisionist view.

Good dude

Yeah, Lennon was a horrible person, what with the hypocrisy and the abuse. He deserved what he got.

Best person ever!

He has such a big heart! He went all the way to South Dakota to visit a fan in the hospital and even brought his guitar to play a song for him. I don't see many artists today doing that.

He's not really nice anymore.

36 Keanu Reeves Keanu Reeves

Don't even get me started on Keanu Reeves. Man, this guy is my absolute IDOL! A genuine kind soul. Everybody could learn a thing or two about kindness and resilience from him!

He's been through some majorly sucky times in life. He gets bashed by critics for looking too emotionless in his performances(helLO, he keeps on getting typecast as serious characters! ). He's suffered through the deaths of his best friend, his girlfriend, and his own kid. He's gone through the stress of a sister with leukemia, rotating stepfathers, and dyslexia. But man, he's come through it all with that beautiful smile on his face.

Godspeed, Keanu, we love you. You da man!

Legit nice guy! Keanu could give people like Jesus and Mother Teresa lessons on how to be nice. Without the infinite kindness of Keanu Reeves, humanity would have already caused its own extinction, because there would be that much more hostility in the world. - SloppyFirsts

37 Dirk Nowitzki Dirk Nowitzki

39 Muhammad Ali Muhammad Ali Muhammad Ali (January 17th 1942 - June 3rd 2016) was an American former professional boxer . He was generally considered among the greatest heavyweights in the history of the sport.

Nobody is forced into the ring. Prizefighting is mutual, consensual combat for monetary recompense. Moral judgements here are on very shaky ground.

Ali is the greatest. But not the nicest. - marmalade_skies

Because beating up someone in a boxing match is the nicest thing that you could do. - Martinglez
